Logic Apps

Logic Apps allow developers to design workflows that articulate intent via a trigger and series of steps, each invoking an App Service API app whilst securely taking care of authentication and best practices like durable execution.
If you have any feedback or ideas on Azure Logic Apps we’d love to hear it.

How can we improve Microsoft Azure Logic Apps?

  1. Creation and modification of variables

    The ability to create and modify variables such as strings, datetime, Booleans, Integers etc would be very welcome.

    Additionally being able to modify these such as adding X hours to a datetime var or editing a string with regex.

    These additions would allow for much more complex logic for Flow and allow for enterprise level logic to be created.

    • Intellisense / help on WDL expressions

      As described in my blog post http://blog.integrationsoftware.se/azure-app-services-series-finding-1-problems-using-workflow-definition-language-in-logic-apps/ one of the problems we see using WDL expressions in the current interface is the basically non-existing help of how to use WDL. We get some help when choosing what input to send into an action, we see a drop down with all available action result items. But let's say we want to use a condition - there is no dropdown for using an action's status, e.g. @actions('youraction').status to use in a condition such as @equals(actions('youraction').status,'FAILED').

      There is no help about errors returned by actions/triggers which can be used as an input for…

      • Embeddable visual designer

        It would be great if we could embed the visual workflow designer from the portal into our own web apps to allow admin users to edit the workflow steps. Then we could post the updated JSON back to Azure Logic Apps via the REST API.

        • Disable a Logic App for being updated in the Portal when linked to Source COntrol

          Are there any plans to provide a possibility to disable to edit a Logic App through the Portal? A bit like Azure Functions, when you link it to source control, you only can edit via Visual Studio.
          Offcourse only if VS tooling allows all possible functionality of the Portal Editor.

          • Disable/Enable an 'Action' in the LogicApp workflow.

            During building & testing a LogicApps, I need to skip certain actions to verify behavior of later actions independently in the flow. Currently, I need to remove the action to perform such task (which is not very productive).
            Providing enable/disable feature for action(s) will help in this scenario.

            Also, in case, where action needs some input from previous action then feature like "disabling with default output" (mock) will be a great help during development phase.

            • Allow processing of SQL rows into one object/file/email

              Currently a dataset from SQL can only result in an action per row ie creates a file per row, add option to iterate/loop through the dataset to create a single file/email/report

              • Allows multiple rules within a Condition block

                As of now, we are conditions block is very basic, it just allows user to specify one condition. There can be following additions to make it powerful
                1. Ability to add more rules
                2. Ability to define custom rule calculation logic (using AND OR)
                3. Furthermore, a formula script language can be provided wherein flow designer can specify custom formula for condition evaluation

                • Logic App Run: Ability to "View Called workflow runs"

                  If a logic apps call a nested workflow, if we access to Logic app runs we only see that a Manual Trigger was executed and end Succeeded and the duration. It would be great to have the ability to "View Call workflow runs" to show me the runs associated with this "father" run and also access to the the nested/child flow run. Something similar to "View Called Orchestration" in the "BizTalk Orchestration Debugger"

                    • include c# support to configure different connectors

                      There is vast community of .Net developers who would be using Logic apps in future. The devlopers are used to Visual Studio features like intellisense, it would be great if connectors can be configured using C# language and atleast have intellisense activated, so that it becomes easier to code wherever necesaary in Logic apps.

                      • Enable creating parallel flows in designer

                        Parallel flows can be implemented in code view, but it would be nice if adding a parallel flow could be done in designer (for example an option in Add-button More choices?)

                        • Allow several actions in loop constructs

                          It would be convenient to be able to add several actions in the body of the for each and do until loops.
                          Whilst we can of course call child workflows, this limitation seems quite pointless and makes managing the logic apps harder

                              Logic apps should have a nice exception handling feature so that enterprise applications and integrations can move towards it. With the lack of rich exception handling as we have in BizTalk, often its a drawback when moving critical applications/workflows to cloud

                              • Insert action between actions

                                I would like to be able to edit a flow and insert actions in the middle of a chain. The Logic App I've made first just had a trigger and then sent the triggers body away through an HTTP action to test that it worked. Now that I got that up and running I would like to add some validation and transofrmation between those two actions but that's not possible, then I have to remove the last step and add the new steps and then recreate the last one.
                                This might now be such a big deal in this case…

                                • horizontal scrolling in logic app designer

                                  Not able to scroll horizontally within logic app designer. I loaded As2/X12 template in which the workflow is wider. I am not able to navigate to left most elements of the workflow.

                                  Looks like horizontal scrollbar for logic app designer is removed considering some ones suggestion. Can we have an option to scroll horizontally in the logic app designer please.

                                  • Embeddable Workflow Run Status Visual

                                    The visual run map for a workflow run (which is pretty slick by btw) can only be accessed via the Azure Portal. It would be great if we can allow embedding the same in external web pages. The scenario is that we want the end users to see what happened during the logic app run, without having to give them perms on the Azure Portal.

                                    • add an instring function

                                      Add an instring function so we can use better logic when calling the substring or other functions.

                                      • Validation on saving a logic app

                                        I have a logic app with several HTTP actions.
                                        As I don't want the default retry behaviour I added the section as specified on MSDN via the logic app code view (would be great have this configurable via the designer though.)

                                        I set the 'type' to 'None' to disable the retry policy entirely.
                                        The logic app could be saved without an issue, but when I ran it I got this error: "a retry policy of type 'None' must not have a retry count specified".

                                        As this is just a matter of validation, it would be very helpful to have this…

                                        • Multiple Slots

                                          Like Web App and API App where you can configure multiple slots , it would be a good idea for Logic app also to have similar configuration. So when I test a dev slot for my web I would connect to the dev slot of my logic app
